Inhaltsangabe

Big business is booming and state institutions are thriving thanks to advances in genetic engineering, which have produced a compliant population free from addictions. Violent crime is now a rarity. Mayhew McCline, a major corporation that analyzes global trends, has hired a genius: Jayna.

A brilliant mathematical modeler, she has the ability to produce accurate predictions that are both good for the world and good for the bottom line. Her latest coup: finding a link between northeasterly winds and violent crime. When a string of events contradicts her forecasts - including a multiple homicide on the wrong day - Jayna suspects she needs more data and better intuition. She needs to understand what it means to be "normal," so she disrupts her strict daily routine and, unknowingly, sets herself on a path that leads to new encounters, new experiences, and - perhaps most dangerous - new emotions.

Terrible narrator

I had to rate the story to be able to write this review. Unfortunately I haven't been able to listen to it, because the narrator has an intolerable sentence melody. A sentence never seems to finish, because the melody does not go down at the end. This way it seems like the narrator is forever "breathless", the sentences running into each other. I can't describe it any better. So I decided I will read the story rather than listen to it.
